From urban drama and European cinema to slapstick comedy and sci-fi, I’ve worked a number of different roles, including sound effects editor, Foley mixer and sound designer.

I mostly work on drama, but it always makes a nice change of pace and style to delve into factual storytelling. Even as the lines between drama and documentary become blurred, as a sound designer, I ask myself what might the viewer want to experience and learn from the story.
From top: Being First Minister (2018, BBC One Wales, 60 mins, sound editor), The Living Thames (2018, 60 mins, sound designer), Bobbejaan (2015, 84 mins, Foley recordist), Gardening Is Good (2015, 30 mins, sound designer).
Commercials, promos and teasers present different challenges to longer work. Having to get a point across in such a short space of time can lead to a cluttered and confusing sound story.

This page is still very much under construction, so in the meantime I hope you enjoy a few other projects I’ve worked on over the past few years:
• Sound and Music Lookbook 2012 - 2017 (2017)• A Conceptual Framework for Designing Soundscapes In Museums (2016) • Bombay Spleen (2014) • Antigona (2011).
